Turtle Valley residents Curtis Johnson, Ashley Johnson and Mike Makayev join Kamloops Last Week to talk [at the 32:16 mark] of their harrowing experience with evacuation and saving animals from the Bush Creek East wildfire.
They express concerns with communication and action from authorities and praise the Shuswap community for its togetherness.
Curtis takes issue with planned ignition and Ashley questions emergency support systems. Structures on the family property were still in danger while the show was taped on Aug. 23.
Glenn Farrow, streets and environmental services manager for the City of Kamloops, hops in [15:20] to discuss the new waste collection system in the city — and he brings props.
Marsupials feature in our weekly sponsorship improv session [10:40], which takes the #LastWeekClique on a drive in an electric car from Volkswagen to Gord’s Appliance and Mattress Centre in time to capitalize on the Big Deal Sale, with a jolt from McDonald’s coffee, which appears to fuel co-host Chris Foulds’ ego.
